Michael Czarnecki and the Montana Poets Series

This week on The Write Question, Chérie Newman talks with Michael Czarnecki, a poet and publisher. Although he lives in central New York State -- nowhere hear the West -- Czarnecki's company, Foothills Publishing, publishes collections of poetry written by Montana poets.

The first six books in the Montana Poets Series were published in 2010 and included collections by Roger Dunsmore, Jenni Fallein, David Thomas, Jennifer Greene, John Holbrook, and Cedar Brant. The next six books will be released in 2012. Czarnecki names four of those poets during the second half of the program. He also talks about his transition from sales rep for a winery to full-time poet and "encourager" and reads from his collection, Never Stop Asking for Poems.
